2022-23 School Year (Gr 6-9)
Explore Academy - Las Cruces did not need a lottery this year because the number of applications did not exceed the number of available seats. All students who applied before March 15 received acceptances and the school moved into open enrollment to fill any remaining seats in each grade,
on a first-come, first served basis.
If interested, please fill out a lottery application for the 2022-23 school year here.
If there is room in the appropriate grade level, you will receive an email with a link to complete the enrollment form (and upload documents). Your student is not fully enrolled/registered until this last step is completed!
